Eric M. Glover

Assistant Professor Adjunct of Dramaturgy and Dramatic Criticism

Eric M. Glover is an assistant professor adjunct of dramaturgy and dramatic criticism at Yale University who is an expert on black musical theater. Eric's first book in progress, an antiracist history of the musicals and the antimusicals of Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston, makes a case for taking them seriously as musical theater writers. Eric's book review and magazine article either appear or are forthcoming in The Journal of American Drama and Theater and The Sondheim Review, respectively. Interests include but are not limited to adaptation, African-American languages, literatures, and cultures, casting, drama and performance, musicals of Stephen Sondheim, new plays, plays of Suzan-Lori Parks, and production dramaturgy, for example. Eric has taught theater studies courses at College of Staten Island of the City University of New York, Ithaca College, and Swarthmore College previously. It is important to Eric, an alumnus of the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program at The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, that a career in higher education be open to underrepresented minority groups. Eric has served the public good as a Princeton Summer Undergraduate Research Experience Program graduate mentor in the graduate school at Princeton University previously.
